The Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation (WACF) was formed in 1991 to anticipate, seek out and resolve threats to the water quality in the Wawasee area watershed. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting education, encouraging best management practices to reduce erosion and acquiring wetlands and endangered shoreline areas. Now in our 27th year, our efforts have resulted in the acquisition and protection of over 10 miles of shoreline and 51 wetland areas totaling over 900 acres.
